Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs has responded to the alleged appearance of legendary Pokemon, including most prominently Articuno, in Trainers' accounts, revealing that the company has removed these Pokemon from players' accounts. These people are reportedly experiencing game functionality changes after the most recent update has been released. Just ask the people who walked off of a cliff while playing, or any of the other Pokemon GO players who have made headlines for the wrong reasons in the short time the game has been available. Fans complained about them before, but it seems like the move was necessary.

The "Pokemon Go" tracker usually works by showing a nearby Pokemon creature on the display.

Pokemon Go exploded after its introduction in the United States on July 6, sending players into city streets, offices, parks and restaurants to search for colorful animated characters.

As a result of this, many players are requesting refunds and some reddit users have discovered that the company is not accepting support emails which is a breach of Android terms and conditions.

Companies making and distributing Pokemon Go know of the problem but have only touched on it lightly, according to the lawsuit. The generated tracking report, in turn, made tracking Pokemon creatures extremely hard, Kotaku reported. One of the creators of Pokevision, a third-party tracking app, wrote an open letter to Niantic following the shut down of the app to address some player concerns.

The CEO also has a message for those still angry there's no easy way to track down Pokemon in the wild. Some reports suggested players have previously manipulated the game's code to make legendary or other unseen Pokemon appear in the game.
